The semifinals of the Heineken 15’s featured the Lions and Chiefs putting all they had out on the field. The Lions came out the victors outscoring the Lions 23-5 Saturday afternoon at the UOG field.

Steven Sablan, the Lions’ scrum half, proved to be essential in the win, scoring a try, a couple of conversions and a penalty kick. Not withholding anything, the forwards menacingly clashed into each other, showing the crowd just how eager both teams wanted to win.

Under the heat of the sun and the constant rhythm of run, tackle, and ruck, Sablan played it smart and saved his team a lot of energy by kicking the ball deep down field and out of bounds.

Sablan got his team up on the board first, knocking in a penalty kick, making the score 3-0.

Right before the half, Sablan found the try zone after breaking free from a scrum from about 35 meters out. Sablan then successfully kicked the conversion.

Down at the half, the Chiefs franticly tried to get in scores, but were stopped short of the try line each time.

Lions’ Rob Leon Guerrero picked up a loose ball, shrugged off a few tackles and placed the ball down for another try.

Midway through the half, Chiefs’ Chris Sgro was able to break through the line, scoring their only try of the game.

For the final score of the game, Lions’ David Sablan weaved his way into the try zone after a penalty and the final whistle was blown.

In the other game of the day, the Ryders defeated Da Doks 47-5.
